So you want to make money online do you? Well you’re in luck because that’s exactly what I’m going to be going over in today’s post.

My name is Zukais and I’m a digital marketer. I mainly specialize in SEO. Simply put, SEO is the act of putting web pages on Google for targeted search terms.

In this post, I’ll be going over 1 make money online method that will get you that initial start in making money online.

Blogging + affiliate marketing

Blogging combined with affiliate marketing is probably the most cliche way to make money online outside of filling out surveys which is pretty much bogus and does not work.

Here’s how you do it…

First of all, pick a niche to specialize in

Before creating your blog, you must specialize in a niche.

A niche is simply a portion of a market/industry. For example, the skin care market, a niche could be acne.

So you’re simply picking a small piece of a big puzzle. This will help you get targeted traffic and ultimately assist you in carving out your piece of the marketing.

How do I choose a niche?

When choosing a niche, make sure it’s profitable and make sure you’ll actually be able to monetize it. Make sure to check out affiliate networks like Clickbank, JVzoo, and Amazon to make sure people are selling products in that niche.

One way you can choose a niche is signing up to Pinterest and when you have to pick interests, there are a ton of different niches you can choose from.

Of course there are more ways to pick a niche but this is just one of many.

 

Create your blog

At this point, you want to create your blog. I would recommend signing up to SeekaHost as it’s extremely cheap. This way you’re not making a big financial investment. You can check out my blog if you want to learn step by step how to setup a blog.

But it’s a fairly simple process and not as technical as people make it out to be. You simply need to purchase a domain name and sign up to a hosting package.

After this is done, you need to activate WordPress. WordPress is simply a platform that’s going to allow you to customize your blog in an easy to understand manner.

Keyword research

Keyword research is a data driven way to find search terms that your target audience have put into Google.

How do I do keyword research?

It’s simple. First of all, you need to sign up to an affiliate network. Amazon will be the easiest. However, I would recommend finding other affiliate networks that pay out more. ClickBank is a good starting point.

Now you want to choose a product to promote.

Let’s say you’ve got a bodybuilding blog and you’ve found a product which helps you increase your bench press. You could target terms like:

 

  • How to increase your bench press for skinny guys
  • Best bench press program
  • How do I break past my bench press plateau

I just made these search terms up. What you would do is type these keywords into a tool like Ubersuggest and see if there’s any search volume. You’ll also get related keywords so you don’t have to keep making up keywords and see if they’ve got any search volume.

 

Creating your article

After you’ve done the keyword research. You will have to create your article. Write about the product and its benefits.

After you’ve done that, you will need to SEO your article.

Here are some tips to SEO your article:

 

  • Include your keyword in the WordPress title
  • Put your keyword in a h2 and h3 tag
  • Make sure your keyword is in the Google title (you can use the Yoast SEO plugin to fo this)
  • Make the URL is your keyword
  • Make sure your article has lots of multimedia (image and videos)
  • Make sure your article is at least 1200 words long

After this is done, you can hit publish.

So that’s one simple make money online formula.
